Women’s Rights (or lack thereof) in Algeria

Here’s an enlightening (and simultaneously frustrating) documentary (about an hour long) about one young woman (Chahinaz) and her quest to overcome religious and traditional constraints on women’s rights in Algeria.  Progress in the Muslim world is frustratingly slow.  Then again, look at the situation in the US 150 years ago and how far we’ve come since then.  But can we wait 150 years for places like Algeria to catch up?
